Idk why but I just feel compelled to put this up here today.

I lived through, I survived, I am surviving every single one of these #TypesOfAbuse. Every. Single. One.
From 1 single solitary person.

And this actually leaves off one more type of abuse that he does: #SpiritualAbuse
Spiritual Abuse from him in the lives of me and my children has included:

- Threatening to harm/harming my position or respect in church

- Which he tried to doo by taking me to our pastor countless times to falsely accuse me of violating scripture and "not honoring him"
- and lying to our church family, creating false narratives, presenting a false positive image of himself & his relationship to his children & me, deceiving church leadership to obtain positions and increase credibility w pastors, parishioners, etc

#SpiritualAbuse #DomesticAbuse
- the latter of which he has been successful in doing three times. Three times - THREE DIFFERENT CHURCHES in THREE DIFFERENT CITIES -he's destroyed the community and relationships I and my children loved and that I had built.

to also isolate.

- Creating a rule that I could only use one specific type of Bible

- He gets angry and tells the children that God is not pleased with them if they don't answer questions about me and our home when he interrogates them. They tell him to "Ask Mommy". He never does.
And while these domestic abuse behaviors are enabled by ignorant people, people no different from most people - victim blamers, without knowledge, becoming fools as they profess themselves to be wise in all ways, these things don't reflect my God or my faith.
They reflect the systemic flaws far too present in many faiths, amongst atheists and .

Even in Christianity, salvation is never enough. The mind MUST be renewed.

We live in an unkind misogynistic society that makes gods of men. And people are people. Susceptible to infection.
Until they learn better and love better, they'll ever be used of the evil in this world that makes it possible for men to behave like rabid mice and still be praised.

God is who kept my mind. He's answered more cries than I can tell you about.
God is who kept my mind. He's answered more cries than I can tell you about.

For me, God is why I could hope even in hopelessness. Why I gave asking for help one more try. And every time my heart has failed me, God made it beat again.
Whether you believe in God or not, on this let us agree: #DomesticAbuse is wrong. We gotta hold abusers accountable...even if you love the person that is the abuser. And we can't just leave victims and children suffering like this, at the hands and the power of toxic people.
If you all had not/were not sharing and giving and helping right now, it would of been over for me and my little ones...

...bc in 2019, if I have any hope of complete freedom for me and my children from the most intimate abuse, power and control by another, I HAVE TO BUY IT.
And I don't know if anyone knows what that feels like- to know you are trapped and at the mercy of a cruel mind, and the only possible way out, to get your children free, is to BUY it... only to realize you dont have the money to do it.

This shouldn't be.
